Couples rings are a Japanese trend that is becoming increasingly popular in the West. But what do they signify and where can you buy them in England? BAUNAT has gathered all the facts and our top picks of places to buy couples rings in the English capital, London.


What are couples rings?

Couples rings are a special type of ring given and worn by two people in a significant relationship. While in the West, we traditionally have three types of rings: promise rings, denoting commitment in younger couples, engagement rings and wedding rings; there is a burgeoning trend among Japanese young people of exchanging couples rings. These rings are frequently exchanged between younger couples and signify a commitment to each other and a mutual interest in eventual marriage. Engagement rings then solidify that promise, with wedding rings being the last step. However, in Japan, couples rings can also be worn by friends to represent a non-romantic attachment. Even when worn by two people who are romantically involved, they do not necessarily represent a commitment to get married. There is no set time to give couples rings, though, in Japan, it is popular to give them on your 100 day anniversary. However, you could use them to mark a birthday, another anniversary or a romantic holiday.

Where can I buy couples rings in London?

London is full of fantastic jewellers, where you will find lots of options for couples rings. In general, when looking to buy jewellery in the Big Smoke, we would recommend staying north of the River Thames and wandering around the area surrounding the British Museum. Nevertheless, if you want to look at specific jewellery shops, we have rounded up our favourite.
